I was annoyed by the exact same problem, so I have programmed an app that automatically saves your wallpapers and your live wallpapers too. It makes it easy to revert to a previous wallpaper. It is called Wallpaper Saver, by Appdictive, and it's free in the Play Store. (It does not require root access.)

A one line script should do this on a root 'ed handset, be aware that this is for Linux and hard-coded for 800x480 screen resolution and also, if your Android's Linux Kernel has framebuffer support compiled in: #!/bin/sh adb pull /dev/graphics/fb0 fb0 && ffmpeg -vframes 1 -vcodec rawvideo -f rawvideo -pix_fmt rgb565le -s 480x800 -i fb0 -f image2 -...

If you add a file with the name .nomedia (note the period at the beginning) to the folder, the automatic media scanner will skip that folder in the future. Thus no images from there will appear in the Gallery. You can do this by tethering to your computer or by using one of the several folder-browsing apps in the Play Store (e.g., ES File Explorer, ASTRO).

This is not related to AM/PM as the screenshot shows. This issue appears to happen due to Google Hangouts. I have heard from a few Moto G owners that this happens a lot on that device, and can cause issues moving to SD card, however, it really seems to be down to Google Hangouts. Here is a mention on Reddit, and on an unrelated thread the same issue crops ...

In Android 7.0, it's located in /data/system/users/0. You'll have to use a file explorer to rename it to a jpg or whatever it is. The folder also contains your lockscreen wallpaper so that's a plus.

You can delete the photos via the Google+ app or web interface. From the left-hand menu, click Photos. If you haven't turned on auto-upload and don't want to, click Not now to get rid of the prompts.

Last but not least, the Lollipop lock screen shows full-screen still images from multimedia content being played from the device -- so you might see a graphic from a TV show or cover art from an album, depending on what you're streaming. In my experience, however, the images don't seem to clear properly when the content is no longer being played. I ...

Ah, cripes. I don't know what on Earth put this .nomedia file on the root of my SD card. Problem fixed.

Old question , posting to add alternative using Google Now on Tap on Marshmallow, which does away with failed attempts in getting the right combo of keys correctly pressed (at times I ended up rebooting :-) This has the advantage of better organising screenshots or sharing directly with contacts using Direct Share, which pops up when you wish to share ...

I just ran into this same issue. I think it's because I had a contact for myself in gmail that didn't match the capitalization that the gmail app (or maybe just android) uses for your personal email address (all lower case for me). In any case, here's the steps I took that fixed it for me. I am running Jelly Bean, so it may be a little different for you. ...

You could try with On{x} a free app by Microsoft before going for Tasker (paid) where you could do it using the "file modified" context on the directory where the images are copied.

It contains 96x96 pixel versions of your photos. The file is simply a concatenation of JPEG files. You can split it into individual JPG files by searching for the signatures indicating the start and end of a JPG file, i.e. the two bytes FF D8 for the start and FF D9 as the end. If you can transfer the file to your computer and you can access Python, the ...

A rooted system is a system that has a working su binary, that is, one that allows the user and/or processes to attain full root rights. So, in order to root a device, you "just" need to get that binary in place, and you're done. (In practice, it's not as simple; most superuser applications ship with a daemon that is actually responsible for giving apps root ...

I just had this problem resolved. On the home screen of your Samsung, pull the notifications menu up by swiping your finger from the top of the screen. Click on USB charging tab. Click on File transfer or Photo transfer. In windows explorer on your computer, click on your device. You will then see your phone details come up.

The camera api within android is not written to be able to capture RAW. The camera firmware is at the kernel level and would require a custom kernel that is written with RAW in mind. Some of the post processing is being handled on the phone at the camera firmware level making it nearly impossible to find a way to actually capture RAW images.

Short answer, No. Nexus images are built for the specific hardware in the device. This is true for all devices, even variants of the same device. For example, You may not be able to install a ROM that is for the LG G3 D855, the international version of the device, on the LG G3 D851, the T-mobile version. Even though the D851 and the D855 are very close to ...

I think there is no native way of doing that, and I have not seen any app that does it. From my experience, the best way is via WhatsappWeb. I used this quite a few times. Select the target conversation, on the left. Click on the conversation name, at the top. Expand Media. Make sure all files are loaded, by scrolling/waiting. Select all files you want. ...

Please feel free to use a folder structure which suits you. It's better if you create a seperate folder for pictures, inside media folder or on the primary folder itself. (where the folders such as DCIM and media are located.) As your title asks, there are no hard and fast methods to transfer data to your phone. Standard file transfer safety measures apply. ...

Firstly, this is assuming you have ICS or higher (not sure if the Gallery works this way before then). If you open an album, you should be able to long-press on a photo, and then at the top of the screen, where it says 1 selected, press that and you can say 'select all'. Then upload them.

I'm afraid there is no real protection possible, for multiple reasons: as you stated, all apps can read everywhere on the SDCard. This does not require any special permission apps with the INTERNET permission are not restricted in using the network in any way -- they even can create their own sockets and implement their own ways of communication while using ...

The compression is actually performed by your carrier. Almost all mobile network carriers compress images to reduce bandwidth use on slow mobile connections. You can avoid the compression by switching to a Wi-Fi network, or using an HTTPS connection to the website you want: since HTTPS is secured from interception, the carrier can't replace the pictures ...
